Rita Matlock



Having travelled more than 900,000 kms as an off-campus lecturer for the University of Saskatchewan since 1990, I obviously enjoy highway driving! I have taught face-to-face classes and offered writing workshops in many Saskatchewan locations, including Muenster, Melfort, Nipawin, Tisdale, Swift Current, Kindersley, Rosetown, Warman, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Regina, and La Ronge. I hope that I have not forgotten any of the sites that I have visited! I enjoy travelling the province, except when I have had to drive in a blizzard.


ENG 113

I have been teaching at St. Peter’s College in Muenster for several years, mainly in the fall term. I have also taught for SUNTEP at the University of Saskatchewan for more than 20 years, I often teach online classes in Spring/Summer sessions, having piloted online first-year English classes in 2012, and I teach one of the hybrid first-year English classes out of Prince Albert. In 2017. I was awarded the Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer teaching award. Currently, I am the Coordinator for the Writing Centre at the PA & Off-Campus Tutorial Help Centre for students who study at a distance.

My academic interests include nineteenth-century literature and history, especially the American South. My non-academic interests include reading Anne Perry’s novels and struggling with Sudoku. In my off-time, I enjoy riding a motorcycle and walking my dogs. Walking your dog or someone else’s dog is a good stress reliever, even in the winter months! Some might say that this is the only way to embrace winter in Saskatchewan.
